These Ancient Relics Are So Advanced They Shouldn’t Exist…

a 42 here in 1902 an archaeologist was diving off the coast of the Greek island of Antikythera when he chanced upon a large shipwreck it was the ruins of a Roman trading vessel carrying large amounts of wine and various other treasures from the Greek islands what the diver found was one of the greatest halls of antiquity period artifacts we have ever found but among the pottery marble statues and jewelry inside an unassuming wooden box was an object that historians have never ever seen before a device so bewildering that it altered everything we knew about ancient history this highly corroded bronze relic is the Antikythera mechanism named after where it was found but beyond that it is shrouded in mystery what we do know is that it was constructed by an unknown Greek scientist over 2100 years ago the strange mechanical device is made up of numerous gears switches and mechanical oddities upon its discovery scientists pulled their hair up trying to deduce where it came from who made it how does it work and what does it do scientists from all over the world examined the device for over a hundred years but nobody ever got remotely close to uncovering its secrets and so for the past 100 years the Antikythera mechanism has sat on display at the National Museum of Archaeology in Athens Greece completely undisturbed shrouded in mystery until recently over the past 20 years using a whole array of modern technologies we have been able to crack the code behind this unknown mechanism a whole host of experts in the fields of engineering archaeology and various other Sciences from multiple countries collaborated in an effort to painstakingly pick apart the device but there was a problem being such a significant historic relic the Antikythera mechanism couldn’t literally be picked apart so to see beneath the surface scientists had to use a highly specialized x-ray machine which presented another problem one of the only x-ray machines in the world capable of seeing inside this corroded bronze Marvel was located in England the relic itself is far too fragile to be moved outside of its Athens museum so the extremely large and heavy x-ray machine had to be shipped all away to Athens that’s a great expense so that the relic could be safely imaged without moving it more than a few metres but the details that they uncovered inside the device blew the minds of every antiquity historian out there because the technology used inside it shouldn’t have existed over 2,000 years ago when it was made the complex clock-like device contains 37 gears of varying sizes shapes and teeth counts each cog is precisely manufactured to exacting standards and has a teeth count that correlates to a prime number what you’re looking at ladies and gentlemen is the world’s very first computer over 2,000 years before the Apple one and over two thousand years before Alan Turing’s bomba it’s incredible to think that this is an actual computer that can take an input and compute an output that was invented and created in roughly 100 b.c over one and a half thousand years before arguably less complex things like the printing press the light bulb and the steam engine whirring vent

most advanced technology available tools today and the collective work of many experts over a number of years we have been able to determine that this ancient computers function was to track the metonic calendar and predict solar eclipses it also keeps track of the timing of several athletic games such as the ancient Olympics this device should not exist it is so incomprehensibly ahead of its time that it’s almost impossible to believe that it was created when it was to put things into perspective the first mechanical clock wasn’t invented until late 14th century and it was roughly the size of a small car yet this device created 1,500 years earlier in ancient Greece was considerably smaller more intricate more precisely engineered and many times smarter for it could not only keep track of time but predict the future in the way that’s a piece of modern computer software the Antikythera mechanism contains sets of gears pins and rivets that could collectively model and keep track of the movement of the Sun Moon and planets in the night sky this is a diagram of the logic pathways of the Antikythera mechanism showing the functions of each gear if such a device were created today it would still be impressive it is believed that the knowledge used to create such an advanced device was lost in antiquity as nothing anywhere close to as sophisticated as this would be created for another thousand years the gross in probability of its existence has of course led to many science fiction writers claiming it was created by or given tools by aliens but the Antikythera mechanism isn’t the first out-of-place historic artifact which has been blamed on aliens in 1912 a Polish book dealer named Wilfred Voynich travelled to Villa Mondragon II in Italy where he discovered and purchased a very old and very mysterious book it had no title upon the cover and no author within it it contained hundreds of pages of detailed yet bizarre illustrations surrounded by text that is written in an unknown language or possibly a code for the remainder of his life avoiding it became completely obsessed with decoding the books words and diagrams to try and understand who wrote it when and where was it written and what does it all mean having dedicated his entire life to unlocking the book secrets Voynich died having come no closer to answering any of these questions the book has been given the name the Voynich manuscript script after the man who found it and so the Voynich manuscript was passed around from one cryptographer to another both American and British codebreakers attempted to decode it during World War one and – with absolutely no success it has come to be one of the most famous unsolved codes in the entire history of cryptography even using the most sophisticated computer Crypt analyst techniques available to us today we have still not even come close to solving it linguists have examined the manuscript and concluded that its contents are not written in any natural historic language that we know of this only leaves two likely alternatives the book is written in a very old language that we are completely unaware of that was lost to time or the other option it is written using a cipher a secret code to disguise the true contents of the text this means that whatever is written in the Voynich manuscript is of such high importance and significance that the author felt it necessary to painstakingly encode every word the animal skin parchments that the manuscript is written on was recently carbon dated the results showed that the book was written sometime between 1404 and 1438 cryptography was really very basic at this time in history the only effective method of cryptography that had been discovered in the 15th century were substitution ciphers in which each letter of the alphabet is simply swapped with another using modern computers we have long been able to crack such ciphers with ease in fact we have been able to crack every known cipher up to the 18th century long after the Voynich manuscript was supposedly written yes this one mysterious book still remains uncrackable the illustrations consist of a variety of herbal plants as well as nude women bathing astrological symbols and visual metaphors some of the illustrations contained within have an uncanny resemblance to images from the natural world that would not have even been seen by humans for another few hundred years after the manuscripts inception such as this illustration that looks remarkably similar to a galaxy and this which has a resemblance of a plant cell yet the telescope and microscope wouldn’t be invented until 200 years later there are many aspects to this manuscript that are historically out of place and way ahead of their time leading many to believe that the Voynich manuscript is the memoirs of an alien who was stranded on planet Earth which could also explain the alien like language yes I know it seemed like whenever the Internet is struggling to explain something it turns to aliens other theories from various scholars around the world include the Voynich manuscript was written by medieval scientist Roger Bacon or even by a young Leonardo da Vinci but the carbon dating of the book puts its inception out of both of these men’s lifetimes it has been fought by many that’s if we could crack the Voynich manuscript we would unlock the secret to eternal youth as many of the illustrations seem to allude to this over say it’s in alchemists handbook and it contains hundreds of powerful alchemy recipes long lost but one incredible aspect of the Voynich manuscript which I can’t wrap my head around is that upon examination under a microscope there is not a single mistake or error across all 260 plus pages of this mysterious codex there is not one piece of evidence that suggests that a correction was made by the author considering that it contains many thousands of words written in a secret code and some of the most complex detailed and beautiful illustrations from a book of this time period including a masterfully illustrated six page foldouts the fact that not a single mistake was made by the author is quite frankly unbelievable superhuman in fact today it sits securely in the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript library at yet it is undoubtedly the most mysterious book within the library’s vast collection every few years another learning scholar tries to look at deciphering the book stacks and unlocking its secrets or have so far failed thanks for watching if you enjoyed this

  • Since we are just guessing the codes book is probably and Angel's book or angelic language who knows

  • I wouldn't surprise me if they received that knowledge from ancient Egypt way earlier when they were traveling the world

  • Well done truly great video! I have failed plenty of times yet so thrilled to have found this web site here PaidHomeEasy .Com (remove space) it can absolutely aid newbies get their very first commission on-line. Hope it can benefit you too

  • This guy talks like the tv aliens from They Live

  • Calling this a computer is a careless and exxagerative leap.

  • So it's a calender

  • Did it track the heavens successfully ? Don't even hint that it did. Frozen in rust it's utterly unproveable

  • The narcissistic modern man actually thinks that the ancient man was NOT as intelligent as he actually was.  He had the same human brain that is around today.  Get over yourselves.

  • I clicked thumbs down, what do I get?

  • “Upon further investigation and magna fluxing we were able to extract the inventors name, Jack A. Computer”

  • Some day humans may not be able to decode our language that we know today. Think of that..

  • PGP has never been cracked, and it was made 1991

  • The manuscript was writing in an old Turkish language, they already translating it. Need to update it.

  • Tobacco grinder?

  • The Voynich Manuscript was written by a traveller from another dimension who was stranded on our version of earth, similar, yet different from his.

    MECHANISM. It's awesome. He documented the whole thing with in depth explanations.

  • If the Voynich manuscript was a fake created to swindle a wealthy collector, it could explain why there are no corrections within the text. If nothing was actually being said, there would be no need to correct errors. In fact, it's possible that the author was illiterate.

  • Shut up to much information

  • Voynich Manuscript is solved now, its old turkish and most likely a book made by a merchant from Europe that could speak and write Turkish.

  • Money for things, you can see for free all over YouTube, badboy capitalist, thats so sad

  • Yet they couldn’t invent the wheel

  • the device is a Clock and it was made in Arabia
    search youtube for ( Muslim Heritage: alJazari's Elephant Clock

  • Lol it's a science book

  • I think it pops off wine caps considering how it was found

  • I would love to have a crack at disyphering the voynich manuscript.

  • He's lucky, I've never seen a host or narrator with such a speech impediment, can't enunciate properly, and not having a deeper voice.

  • If the library hadn't burned…. those dumb fucks

  • The holy bible is the only true book given to us by GOD. written by men inspired by the HOLY SPIRIT . Any one can read this amazing book in practically . Any language. Truly the most important book to read and BELIEVE in by living the teaching of GOD. Yet many will fail and go straight to hell.a few will get it and go to Heaven. And the key to learning the truth of the HOLY bible. You must be born again. You need to REPENT and ask JESUS to come into your HEART and live in you. Ask JESUS to save you from your sins. Then get water BAPTIZED into his DEATH and RESURRECTION. By a Christian church. And ask for the HOLY SPIRIT and the Spirit of TRUTH. To be BAPTIZED by the laying on of hands by the elders of the church. This is the true gospel of jesus CHRIST. Only if you believe that JESUS died and rose again from the dead and is seated at the right HAND of GOD in the heavens. That JESUS died for your sins and you give HIM your WHOLE life in exchange for His then you will be SAVED or born again as a new CREATION in JESUS CHRIST your Lord and SAVIOUR. AMEN

  • Probably everything has been done before. For example if the grid goes down during a nuke event it might take us 500 years to see Facebook again

  • Transmutation?

  • I don’t care what you say it sounds like a classic case of a time traveler

  • "Don't hold that over the water like that!"

  • Ever look into witch books or languages…

  • to believe in anything is a great disadvantage as a human being. It locks in your creativity.

  • I think thats a sorcerer’s book

  • the Codex = some crazy mans life work of gibberish to make many waste there time trying to unravel nothing.  Which is also why there are no mistakes, because its random symbols that mean nothing so there would be no reason for a mistake rework.  For the Relic, Mayans were already tracking the planets on tablets long before. the creator just took the tablets recordings and slapped it on some moving gears. As far as a computer goes,,, not so much, maybe more like a mechanical sundial.

  • I thought everyone already knew that it was an old hand crank siren off a 19th century Greek garbage barge…–sirens-s.jpg

  • Much like "mysterious" ancient stonework, bronze gears fabricated and strategically assembled…..Admirably impressive for ancient humans, for an advance alien species capable of interstellar travel, NOT SO MUCH. Ancient gears and/or other objects made of exotic materials not found on earth……Now that would actually be a reason to consider LGM's, lol. This apparent need to sensationalize something that is truly amazing in and of itself is very perplexing and almost sadly comical. And unfortunately, its a very negative indication of the intelligence of the masses. Oh well, time to go watch Swamp People and Duck Dynasty on the "History Channel"

  • The manuscript is decoded. It's written in turkish.

  • We didn't know about galaxies until Hubble published his work in 1929. We thought our "Milky Way" was the universe until then.

  • Invented by Africans not Greek, however Africans taught Greeks.


  • Advance civilization

  • So much knowledge has been lost due to wars, disasters, and diseases. Can you imagine how much more advanced humans could be if the knowledge contained in the great library was preserved across time?

  • Was pre Adam.

  • Makes you wonder what we did wrong and if we will do it again.

  • Thought: does it go without saying, that as it was found on an ancient Roman ship, that it was made at THAT time? OR could it have been made at a time much earlier still?

  • Russian Mathematicians Solve the Mysterious Voynich Manuscript

  • Voynich MS has rather mundane explanation. Plagiarized women's health text. A joke?

  • Them hands have a mind of their own

  • It will be hard for people to believe that actually a Adam & Eva had smartphones

  • @thoughty2 cant find a class on skillshare teaching how to talk like you

  • Legend says… 2100 years ago they thought that within 2019 humans will be spread all over the solar systems.
    Me; umm.. I don't even know my nabours name!

  • This guy is a liar. Look into the link below.

  • Man, you talk too much.

  • Yeah how do you know aliens even exist

  • That's not really futuristic but humans get dumber over time

  • Also you can’t travel back in time only forwards like right now at this very moment so give them credit

  • Amli store 1item shoe cookie. Hall wall fly bird

  • The smarter they can’t do like us are , we have media like Facebook, YouTube

  • There they go again trying to convince the world how great they are. The greatest treasures ever found came out of Africa yet they sit in European museums because white folks plunder other people's shyt then gloat about "what they found". So many African artifacts have broken noses because white folks intentionally tried to destroy the evidence of the glory of the black race. They still try to make black people white in Hollywood to this day, including Cleopatra, Moses, Jesus and so on. If we wait long enough Hollywood gonna make Obama, MLK and Malcolm X white too.

  • All we have to pass on is twerking videos.

  • His eye brows are an uncrackable code

  • i don't know if i"m being too generous here , i think our civilization is the most dumbest ever walked the earth. -TY.

  • Read Jonathan Grays book… Dead mans secrets it explains everything.

  • Well, I heard that a small part of that book has been decoded. Its a medical book for women issues. What herbs to use in what portions for a given problem, etc. From what I can recall it was done that way because it was written during the time of the witch burns and etc. So, that's why it was done that way. Whoever wrote it would have to be about 50 years before Michel de Nostredame. And I wouldn't doubt he saw the book at some point.

  • I have been thinking about the Antikythera Device. We call it "the first" such thing. We have no proof of this. Not only that, this goes against common sense. It would not have been built as is, fully functioning. It would have had machines it built upon, and prototypes. It can be just the last survivor of now never to be known such devices made by the same creator.

  • There should not be any scientists. They're all retarded.

  • Brilliant video,,,, shame about your annoying EYEBROW,,,, dude relax there's no need to rival The Rock

  • The guy claims there are no errors, yet no one can read the writings. Kind of hard to argue that there are no errors if you can't even read the text for the context of what's being shown.

  • Apparently as of march 2019 it's been cracked, they're still deciphering it today

  • This guy is so annoying.

  • The manuscript was found to be a turkish dialect (parcially cracked by 2 guys) theres a vid on it. Pretty recent, thought you all should be updated

  • Promote your sponser at the begining to avoid breaking your viewer's attention span, to do so in the middle of a presentation is shady at best…

  • Ecclesiastes 1:9. There is nothing new under the sun. our ancestors did more than we could achieve

  • The antikythera clock is a rarity of pre bronze-age-collapse culture. I suspect it came from Persia, where astrology and mathematics were the playthings of the rich. Some Sultan probably commissioned it to show off to his friends.

  • The Voynich manuscript is written in an obscure dialect of latin for a noble lady for healthcare. It was recently translated.

  • The Bible actually does teach there's life on other planets! Here's the proof:

  • There are two types of computers that could unlock the manuscript's secrets. One is a fluidic computer owned by IBM that is almost exclusively used by the United States government, the other is owned by a list of companies called a quantum computer.

  • Ancient Creek's were smarter than smartest people of today. Ancient Aryan's from Ancient Greece were God's.

  • But can it run DooM?

  • I'm tired of saying this (because it's like, Voynich is everywhere), but you know, it's like that New York Times Diagnosis show on Netflix. Just like PhD doctors in the Mayo clinic missed a war-related disease, and only a handful of people reported the same mutation, not many people, even the people who worked on it for years and still work on it, know. The Voynich Manuscript is not a code. It's a very old language from the region of Pakistan/India, of secret apprenticeship father-son information. Apparently only 14 experts of the language exist. I randomly came across this Indian guy's channel. He knows what it is and it makes total sense. Of course I was skeptical but he needs the credit. It checks out.

  • The Manuscript has now been cracked it is an Old Turkish language!, very cool!

  • Written in the area of 1420 time frame, it was written in an old language that still can be translated today and has, an old Turkish language. Most likely all of it have been translated by now, I'm sure.

  • Does skill share provide guidance to get in the porn industry?

  • Does anyone realize that the only evidence we rely on is recorded history? Additionally, the ancient civilization focused more on inner wisdom and self advancements to create the mind bogging things we see. In our current world, we depend on externals. Our machines, our technology. Yet only very few of us can still tap into our inner wisdom and create new things.

  • Archimedes was the genius who built the mechanism. A brutish, ignorant Roman soldier killed him while he was engrossed trying to solve a difficult problem. No aliens here, just genius.

    Voynich Manuscript Revealed.

  • Device #1 get the Swiss to weigh in on this ( Phoenician ) sexton for navigating the seas.
    Could the vonich manuscript be from middle earth ?
    The writing looks elvish to Me

  • It’s just an old devise that created by an genius and not a alien machines no one has ever seen the alien even the astronaut you must stop showing about aliens because you just wasted time on the nonsense alien study

  • It’s definitely possible, Man is a MF,

  • It looks like a vault door to me.

  • Does this guy know what a computer is?

  • Hash

  • Its Epsteins safe

  • I feel that time is endless and every so often once we get to the epitome of knowledge it gets wiped out and we recycle all over again. As to who we are that's another question as well.

  • Are you seriously gonna spread all these inaccurate information to the world about aliens 🙄🙄🤨🤣

  • Why don’t we Give our ancient ancestors Credit where Credit is dew for all they have achieved?
